  • Measuring and interpreting lexical dispersion in corpus linguistics
    • The frequency of occurrence and the dispersion of a word are measures of a word’s importance in a collection of texts or a corpus. In particular, lexical dispersion is a statistic in corpus linguistics that measures a word’s homogeneity across the parts of a corpus. There are different ways to measure dispersion and the authors compare three approaches. Both formulaic and interpretative issues pertaining to dispersion are discussed in terms of the frequency of a word in the corpus parts and the variability of a word across the corpus. A simulation study and an application involving words from the British National Corpus indicate that the index constructed from the difference between every possible pair of frequencies of the word in the parts of a corpus is preferred.2017-06-14T19:53:57Z

  • Five statistical models for Likert-type experimental data on acceptability
    • This paper contributes to the ongoing debate over Likert scale experiments, in particular the issues of how to treat acceptability judgment data (as ordinal or interval) and what statistical model is appropriate to apply. We analyze empirical data on native speakers’ intuitions regarding marginal change-of state verbs in Russian (e.g. ukonkretit’ ‘concretize’, ovnešnit’ ‘externalize’) and compare the outcomes of five statistical models (parametric and non-parametric tests): (1) ANOVA; (2) Ordinal Logistic Regression Model; (3) Mixed-Effects Regression Model for Ordinal data; (4) Regression Tree and Random Forests Model; and (5) Classification Tree and Random Forests Model. We make four claims: (1) all five models are appropriate for this data to a greater or lesser degree; (2) overall, the outcomes of parametric and non-parametric tests applied to this data provide comparable results; (3) Classification Tree and Random Forests Model is the most appropriate, informative, and user-friendly regarding this data; and (4) the use of a culturally entrenched grading scale is an advantage.2017-06-19T10:06:51Z

  • Gender differences in the personal pronouns usage on the corpus of
           congressional speeches
    • Gender differences in language have been extensively investigated by sociolinguists since the 1960s. This paper aimed to study gender differences in the personal pronouns usage on the corpus of the 113th United States Congress. All uninterrupted speeches (672 by women and 3,655 by men) whose transcripts were downloaded from the official repository Thomas were analyzed with the text analysis software Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count calculating the degree to which the politicians use personal pronouns. In addition, the computational analysis results were further analyzed with the software for statistical analysis SPSS. The quantitative analysis results pointed to minor statistically significant gender differences in the personal pronouns usage. However, the qualitative analysis showed more subtle gender differences pointing to linguistic changes in stereotypization.2016-12-07T17:31:10Z

  • Computational linguistics and temporal perspective
    • This paper presents three studies which utilize Latent Semantic Analysis to investigate the effects of temporal perspective on the development of semantic information within a text. This project comprises a study in the quantitative phenomenology of speech with the goal of modeling how a discourse participant might experience a speech event in real time. The first study presents two short texts which demonstrate the constructs of temporal perspective. The second study tests for differences in semantic development according to temporal perspective across a corpus of 26 texts. The third study examines the occurrence rate at which a section of text causes an increase in semantic similarity within one temporal perspective and a decrease (or no change) in the other. The results support the hypothesis that the development of semantic information within a text differs according to one’s temporal perspective.2016-12-07T17:27:38Z
